Subject: [OASIS Issue Tracker] Commented: (OFFICE-3411) 19.32 config:type:dubious references to SQL specifcation

    [ http://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/OFFICE-3411?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=21945#action_21945 ] 

Michael Stahl  commented on OFFICE-3411:


i don't have one either :)

but some googling turned up a draft version dated 2006-02-01.

the only definition of something called "short" that i could find in this draft is in section 21.4 "embedded SQL C programs"

13) "short" describes an exact numeric variable. The equivalent SQL data type is SMALLINT.

so this is actually a C datatype "short", not an SQL datatype!
so AFAIK there is no SQL definition of these datatypes.

> The config:type attribute specifies a data type for a setting.
> The defined values for the config:type attribute are:
> base64Binary: 18.2
> boolean: 18.3.2
> datetime: 18.2
> double: 18.2
> int: 18.2
> long: defined by [SQL].
> short: defined by [SQL].
> string: 18.2

> most of the values here refer to types from the XMLSchema-2 specification, but surprisingly, 2 of then ("short", "long") refer to the SQL specification.
> i'm guessing this is probably wrong.
> XMLSchema-2 also specifies "short" and "long" types, so why not use those.
> furthermore, the type "int" refers to 18.2, but it is not actually listed in 18.2.
> (in ODF 1.1 the values were not described at all.)
